That exciting feeling – moving into your first grown-up apartment! I had the fridge, the washing machine, the bed, the toaster and an iron – but I didn’t have those things that would make my upstairs apartment into a home . A quick wizz around all my favourite homewares stores revealed what I had suspected – my budget was just not going to stretch to all the must-have pieces I wanted to adorn my upstairs apartment with. I needed affordable homewares. I needed the look without the price tag, I needed to be able to find these things online – and so, Frankie Upstairs was born.

If you’ve made it to this page I know you love gorgeous affordable homewares as much as I do. I’ve scouted the globe to give you the look without the price tag when decorating your little nest. And because I know that you don’t leave your style at home, I’ve also pulled together a range of clothing and accessories that will leave you with plenty of money left for other essential's like cocktails for a night out dancing with your girls! I am all over gift-giving as well.

So, wander around in our on-line store or pop in to our Port Fairy store (upstairs of course) and take a look at our affordable ranges that include Status Anxiety, Cartel and Willow, Pretty Brave, Art Club Concept, Love Ludie, Jolie and Deen just to name a few.
